McAlister GeoScience was retained to conduct a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) consisting of soil sampling for a property located in Redondo Beach California (the Subject Property).
The purpose of the soil sampling and analysis project was to document the nature and extent of potential soil impacts associated with the operation of the Subject Property as a furniture refinishing facility including the storage, use, and disposal of hazardous materials including paints, solvents, and wood stains.
McAlister GeoScience conducted a Phase I ESA prior to the performance of the Phase II ESA while the property was occupied by a furniture stripping and refinishing business. The Phase I ESA recommended comprehensive soil sampling at the Subject Property with analysis of the soil samples collected for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), total petroleum hydrocarbons, and metals associated with aqueous stripping compounds, varnishes, paints, and furniture finishing substances.
A total of seven soil samples were collected from each of the seven borings advanced in areas of hazardous material storage, use, and disposal at the Subject Property. Following sample collection, the borings were backfilled with native soil and surface patched with dry mix concrete to match the existing surface conditions. Samples were submitted to an analytical laboratory for analysis.
